A Brother’s Promise was such a sweet story! It is part of the Bliss, Texas series, but can definitely be read as a stand alone novel. I really liked seeing these two neighbors, who were only acquaintances, grow into friendship and then much more.

Sadie was a sweet girl and it was heartwarming to see how much she loved her Uncle Mickey and how much he loved her, too. They were both grieving a huge loss and Mick was doing all he could to make a good home for her.

I thought that Mick and Christa were great characters who didn’t expect to fall in love or have a family. They both carried some things from their pasts that hindered them a bit emotionally and made them doubt whether the other person could possibly want them.

I really enjoyed this book and that snowstorm felt very realistic, as I just experienced the same thing recently! The ending felt a bit rushed to me, however, it might just be because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to these characters. I hope to see them appear in future books in the series.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
